It’s #volunteersweek and I couldn’t let it pass without saying a BIG THANK YOU to all our volunteers!
Did you know.......... everyone involved in running the club is a volunteer.
It takes 6 coaches, 3 lifeguards, 4 poolside helpers, 3 parent helpers, 2 junior coaches and 1 DOE to run each session.
Behind the scenes making sure it all runs smoothly is a committee of 10 people.
We collectively give 2,500 volunteers hours per year, not including back office stuff like writing session plans, planning and running events, dealing with emails, finances, risk assessments and shopping.
Wow.... I think this is fantastic and would like to say Thank You to every volunteer who makes our wee club a great place for the young people of Dunbar to have fun, improve their swim skills and make friends. ... See MoreSee Less
Hope you're all safe and well. We're missing seeing you at swim club and we hope it won't be too long before we can get back together again. In the meantime, we've got a challenge for you...
Let's see how many passes of the Dunbar Dolphins swim cap we can achieve as a club - with 124 of you out there we'd like to get as many of you involved as possible! There's a sunny weekend ahead which means plenty of opportunity to get outdoors and pass your swim cap in inventive ways.
We’ve attached a wee demo video to give you an idea of what we're looking for.
Please ensure you catch your cap from the left of your shot and throw it out to the right of your shot.
Suggestions for what to do when you catch your cap include swimming your favourite stroke, showing us a new lockdown skill you've learnt or just passing the cap around your family. We're sure you'll have many more creative and wonderful ideas!
Once you've captured your video send it to coach Sharon either via the Dunbar Dolphins Facebook page (@Dunbardolphinsnewshub), by email (email@example.com) or via Whatsapp (07891 020253).
Get your videos in by Monday 8th June to appear in the all-club video.
